"Good colleagues but bad business direction"

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Many colleagues are collegial and fun. Informal, casual setting. One of the biggest broadcaster in Singapore -- the place to be to learn about TV production and broadcasting.

Cons

Managment changes direction very frequently, so much so that a lot of time is wasted on projects that never see the light of day. Among business units, the fighting can be rather vicious. Pay is not great. Benefits are average, though better than many SMEs. Quality of staff varies greatly. MediaCorp tends to squeeze its staff, and remuneration often does not match the amount of work that a person takes up.

Advice to Management

Changing CEOs every few years can be very disruptive. CEO has a reputation to be a "screamer" at times, but he seems to be trying to reach out to the staff in general too.
